Facebook code of conduct (pdf)
Please read our code of conduct before requesting to join
The Brain Tumour Charity's Facebook groups offer a safe online space where people affected by a brain tumour can connect.
Our Groups enable you to share experiences, find and give support and help you feel less isolated. Whether you're living with a brain tumour or you're caring for or supporting a loved one, you're welcome to become a member.
We currently have four Facebook groups; one for anyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, one for young adults aged 16-30 affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, another for parents who have a child under 18 living with a brain tumour and one for carers too, as we recognise the unique challenges that they also face.
The groups are moderated by members of our Support and Information Team and have a code of conduct for your protection. If you'd like to join a group, please read our code of conduct, then click on the relevant link below.
Before we approve request, we ask for a few details from you to make sure that everyone finds the right group for them and that we're creating tools and services that best meet the needs of our community.
We have a minimum age requirement of 16 years for joining our Facebook groups. If you're under 16, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our Children and Families or Young Adult team will be in touch with more information on the support we can provide.
I was greeted with a group of people who just got it. I could vent when I was angry, share when I was sad and tearful, and this group was always there. It didn't seem to matter what time of day or night, there was almost always someone online happy to chat.
If you have further questions, need to clarify any of the information on this page, or want to find out more about research and clinical trials, please contact our team:
